    i currently have an at&t aircard that hooks to my laptop via usb. is there a way to utilize this for my ps3?

  • tonlis1 Jan 03, 2009

    not sure how to find that out. but it says 3.6 mps and as far as 30 min reset, no it stays connected until i disconnect it. i have plugged it into the usb port on my ps3 before but i guess without the software it wont' work.

My ps3 seems slow when i play fight night champion online, is it because my connection to the internet is wireless?


The only way to tell whether this is true or not is too hook it up to the wired connection and test how fast is is versus the wired.

Getting error code 8071053d tried rebootin ps3 and internet not working still wont let me play online


The error code indicates that the PS3 is unable to contact the Playstation Network Servers. This may be caused by the PSN (Playstation Network) being under excessive load (often a result of new, significant DLC being released) or a problem with your router or ISP (Internet Service Provider).

  • On your Playstation 3, go to the Settings menu, scroll down to the bottom and select Network Settings, then select Internet Connection Test. If you do not see success for Obtaining IP Address and Internet Connection, then there is a problem with the networking between your PS3 and the internet.
If you both of these connections prove successful, but you are still not able to sign in to the PSN, try:
  • Contact your ISP and see if they have some sort of outage in your area or are somehow hindering your connection to the Playstation Network.

With Netflix, the show stops about every two minutes to retrieve for about ten minutes.


This has more to do with your internet connection then it does your console. If your using wireless, be sure it's fast enough to handle video streaming. If your using a wired connection, Ethernet or the like, then check your service and make sure that again, yours is fast enough to handle video streaming.

Won't do game updates always times out


If you have an Internet connection that is slow or intermittent is can slow or stop the uploading updates.

Even with a fast connection it is a slow process so patience is essential. It can take 1 hour with a SONY BRAVIA TV.

Suggest you check your Internet connection, then if it is OK and still will not update or upload properly, call out your Internet provider engineer to check it properly.

Cant connect to psn. But i can to internet. :(


One reason this may be happening is having the media sharing option on. Some routers can't handle all the requests the ps3 sends while having this option on. You're using a wireless connection right?

Wont let me update


your internet connection might not be up to standards with how fast the connection needs to be so sometimes ps3's will just refuse to update at all. PS if your connection is that bad there's no point going online anyway not with killzone

Bad connection for wireless internet


There isn't really going to be a "best" wireless Internet service. You just want the fastest that's available to you. Usually that's cable or DSL. I would recommend going with a wired connection instead of wireless, you will have a lot less of these issues. Good luck!

Playstation online problem


How are you hooked up to your Internet ? is it Via a WiFi Router ? if so, ensure that the router is compatible with the Playstation 3. Also, have you tried calling your internet service provider ? they are usually able to solve connection problems with regards to game consoles etc.

Hope this Helps !?
